Chris Kreider May Or May Not Be Out A Month With A Broken Hand


I don’t know what the fuck is going on. Bob McKenzie first reported that Chris Kreider is out at least a month with a broken hand. That tweet has since been deleted, so maybe he jumped the gun. Maybe he was misinformed. Hopefully he is flat out wrong – but the Rangers did announce that Kreider won’t be in the lineup tomorrow. Nothing further. This would be a devastating blow, as Kreids is the only top-6 big body that plays with any sense of grit & toughness. JT Miller would likely take his spot, but he doesn’t bring the speed & size Kreider does. He’s not ready to make a difference down the stretch & in the post-season. I’m not gonna be a Debbie Downer though just yet. I haven’t heard anything from the local Blueshirts beat writers. So let’s hope Bob McKenzie just got punked or something. It’s close to April Fool’s, right?
